NYC’s Pay Transparency Law Faces Backlash From Business Groups

  • NYC’s pay transparency bill requires companies to give minimum and maximum salaries in job ads.
  • Some businesses are opposing the mandate and say it should have never been allowed to go through.
  • “It’s just the wrong solution,” the chief executive of the Partnership for New York City, told WSJ.

Job postings in New York City will soon have to include salary range as part of a new pay transparency bill. But as The Wall Street Journal reported, some business groups are unhappy with the mandate.

The New York City Human Rights Law makes it unlawful for companies to advertise a “job, promotion, or transfer opportunity” without giving the minimum and maximum salary for the role. 

Some companies are exempt, however, including those with fewer than four employees.

Partnership for New York City, a business group that builds partnerships between business and government, have opposed the law,

Gov. Noem’s proposed campground in Custer State Park rankles business owners, lawmakers | Business

South Dakota touts itself as a business-friendly state. That enticed Steve Saint to relocate from Colorado to buy Fort WeLikIt Family Campground in Custer.

Now, however, he is frustrated with Gov. Kristi Noem’s proposed campsite in Custer State Park that would compete with him and other private campground owners in the Black Hills.

“South Dakota said, ‘Come on in. We love small business. South Dakota really convinced me to come here to buy a business and buy into South Dakota,” Saint said. “Now we’re getting the proverbial middle finger — that’s how I feel. Campground owners feel lied to. They’re really taking it personal.”

The $9.9 million plan for a 75-acre site along Wildlife Loop Road in the west-central area of Custer State Park was released late in 2020 by the South Dakota Game, Fish & Parks Department and the governor’s office.

Five Factors to Consider When Choosing Motorless Magnetic Stirrers

You have decided that it is time for your laboratory to switch from traditional stir plates to motorless magnetic stirring with stir bars. After all, you are always busy in the laboratory and constantly developing new ingredients combinations. The lab has not seen much action since you got that new stir plate with the cool-looking stirring bar. That is, until now. While you are at it, consider these five factors.

1. Power

The power of a motorless stir plate is measured in amperes of rotational torque of the stirring bar. Ensure that the magnetic stirring device has enough strength to go against all your ingredients.

2. Digital Display

Market-cap industry leaders sometimes are too scrutinized for real bargains to become apparent. The profits for the institutions and particularly for the officials of these divisions have made bankers often turn a blind eye. A recently released U.S. General Accounting Office (GAO) report, conducted by the investigative branch of the agency, examined the possibility of laundering money in the United States. The investigators traced US$800 million of such funds that had been moved into U.S. banks by one Russian. He did this by registering companies in the “offshore location” of the State of Delaware, which protects the anonymity of corporations. The money was subsequently moved into accounts in the private banking sector of … Read the rest

Burlingame to Begin Charging Businesses That Keep Parklets – CBS San Francisco

BURLINGAME (KPIX) — The city of Burlingame is moving forward with a plan to put a fee structure in place for businesses that want to continue operating parklets.

Starting April 1, businesses that choose to keep parklets will be responsible to pay the city a $1,500 annual rent fee along with a $250 monthly cleaning fee. In total, it would cost a business around $4,500 to have a parklet.

“We set up the parklets as an emergency measure to allow businesses some relief during the pandemic,” said Mayor Ricardo Ortiz. “That was an emergency measure. Now, we’re coming up for a more permanent arrangement.”

However, some business owners tell KPIX they’ll have to stop using their parklets because it will cost too much.

“After this decision came up from the city council, we looked at our budget and our numbers — we really couldn’t afford it,” said Kemal Polat, of

McIntire Florist to operate under new ownership after 90 years in business | Mid-Missouri News

FULTON — Since 1932, McIntire Florist has served Fulton residents in need of floral arrangements.

“A beautiful, mixed, colorful arrangement is Fulton’s go-to bouquet,” Sara Beth McIntire-Clapp said.

Four generations of the McIntire family owned and operated the store, which has been located on the corner of St. Louis Ave. and Market St. off Business Highway 54 since 1946. Robert McIntire, who represents the fourth era of McIntire ownership, is handing McIntire Florist to new hands.

Lifelong Callaway County residents Clint and Shauna Smith are taking over the small business, and they’ve already brought some new life into the Fulton mainstay.

“Just a new facelift,” Clint Smith said. “[We will] probably bring a few more items that’d make you want to walk into the store and not just call over the phone.”

But, they’re still preserving the McIntire name and the family charm of the storied business.

“We definitely wanted
